    How do I use conditional logic to hide page break?

    Asked by BizEnterprise on August 05, 2015 at 07:55 AM

    Hi,

    I am developing an application enrolment form for parents to enrol their children to a private high school (Kingsway Christian College). The form allows parents to enrol up to 5 child on page 5.

    Currently if parents for example selected 1 child then all the other questions for child 2 to 6 are hidden.

    The problem is that users have to click on the "Next" button continually to go through the pages (There are total 38 pages) until users has passed and skip the pages for child 2 to 6.

    This can put off parents as will the length of the form of 38 pages in total if they have less children.

    So is there a way to also hide the pages (perhaps hide page breaks) as well so that if parents have 1 child to enrol, then the next button after entering all details for 1st child will just go directly to the

     

    Thank you for your help

    Kind regards

    David

    Unfortunately, you can't hide the page breaks. I could recommend is using the skip page function. Although it might be quite tricky, but its possible.

     

    Here's an example:

     

    The 2nd rule "Does your child receive any services from an external agency which may affect educational arrangements?" is the question on page 10. It should skip other proceeding pages and will directly navigate user to page 36.

    You can check this guide regarding conditional logic: https://www.jotform.com/help/57-Smart-Forms-Using-Conditional-Logic.

    I would also like to advise hiding multiple fields by using the form collapse bar. Here's a guide on that: https://www.jotform.com/help/297-Show-or-Hide-multiple-fields-at-once-using-form-collapse-tool.

    Do let us know if that helps.
